There was a thread somewhere a couple of years ago when somebody listed the so called sweet numbers for a Blade - as used by Computrack or whoever.
Basics would be fork rake, trail, swing arm inclination, static and loaded sags both ends etc.
I'm playing with setting up a friend's RC 51 and was wondering if anybody might have them to hand.
Thanks

I doubt the numbers would be the same between the Blade and the RC51, as they have substantially different wheelbase, COG, swingarm length, swingarm pivot height, weight bias, curb weight etc.  

Dan Kyle has the numbers for both and I believe the thread you are referring to is from Mixer's ill advice on chassis setup over on Motorush.

I think that dialog was 'expunged' as it got pretty heated and even LDH decided to post a shot or two . . . I should have copied it, because at over 14 pages long, it was a classic.

Just reviving this thread...

I dont feel like bothering dan so if anyone happens to have those numbers for the 954 please post up.

My ohlins shock is arriving soon and my forks will be sent out to dan by the end of the month so i wont to set everything up including ride height before the season starts.

thx
